There’s still time to catch the delightful MACROMATRIX For Your Pleasure exhibition at the UC Berkeley Art museum. The three installations, each focused on offering a moment of beauty and enjoyment, are sure to make you grin. Angela Bulloch’s Disco Floor_Bootleg: 16, a 4 x 4 grid of colorful, illuminated boxes which pulse to the looping beat of Chic’s “Good Times”, wryly evokes minimalist sculpture while referencing the disco era’s hedonistic exuberance. CHIHO AOSHIMA’s digital wall mural A Contented Skull, straddles the line between cute, seductive and spooky with a “superflat” Japanese Manga aesthetic. Finally, not to be missed, Cai Guo-Qiang’s Fireworks from Heaven, a kinetic light installation that fills the room with dazzling choreographed light and is viewed while relaxing in hi-tech, remote controlled japanese massage chairs. Enjoy.
